These were frozen honey buns that you warmed up in the oven. (before microwaves) They were really good. Haven't seen then since the late '80's.

Morton's was apparently bought out by ConAgra. They take comments if you want try and get them back on the market.

My father always worked shift work and used to come home at 5:00 a.m. I remember waking up when he came in to share a Morton's Honey Bun and thought it was the best thing ever. Where did they go?

Harry's Coffee Shop in La Jolla, CA has Honesy Buns that taste JUST LIKE MORTON'S did...! Ask them to heat it a little and you will be in Heaven!

My father was a frozen food buyer back in the 70's and 80's and he used to bring home Morton's all the time. We loved when the Morton's Salesman would come to town! The honey buns were our favorite!

I remember my grandmother making the Morton Honeybuns for a treat for us kids. My cousin just recently had a liver transplant and talked about my grandmother's honeybuns. Brought back memories.

I have found a substitute -PetRitz Honey Buns. They come in a box in the frozen section. I found them at Vista Foods and Harvet Market in Bedford, NH. I have also purchased them at DeMoulas Market Basket in Londonderry, NH. The honey buns are just like Morton's.

my dad used to make these on christmas morning every year for years! it was a holiday tradition..wneh they stopped making them we spent a few years before we found a perfect replacement. if morton honeybuns are what you crave, heres how to replicate. krispey kreme original glazed doughnuts, microwaved for about 10 seconds... its exactly how you remember..well, at least how i remember.

Aahhh! Morton Honey Buns! So delicious! I was so sad to see them go. We used to heat them up in our pop-up toaster oven. Nothing tasted better to me! I've tried other brands, but nothing compares to Morton's. Wish Con-Agra would bring them back. They also had jelly and glazed donuts you would heat up in the toaster. Miss those too!

Wow, I was thinking of these and trying to find out if they still made them. My grandmother used to make them for us, too. Lately, I have been thinking about them, so I just buy the packaged honey buns that you can still buy, and pop them into the toaster oven with a pad of butter on top- just the way grandma did. Heat them till they get that good crispy-gummy crust, and they are every bit as good as I remember the frozen ones being!

I worked at Morton's in Crozet back in the 70's as purchasing agent and manager of the "thrift store". Loved those honey buns, donuts, pies, dinners and pot pies,...think I gained 80 lbs. in the 4 years I was there.

I remember my high school used to serve Morton's Honey Buns in the mornings back in the late 60's. I loved them and would always buy one to eat before my first class started. What a way to start the day! So delicious warm with all that icing melted on the top. I can still remember the taste.

I loved Morton Honey Buns as a kid in the early 70s. I wish they would come back. I think about that crispy crust and eating them hot. I think there were 4 in a box. Yummy!!!!

Morton Honey Buns were the best! I miss them so much and can still taste them. We used to make them in our pop-up toaster oven. A little crispy and sweet and gooey. I wish they would bring them back! So many of the really good foods from the 60's and 70's are gone. :-(

I have been craving these for years and I would give anything to taste them again :( why is it that all of our favorites always end up going out of business or stock ?
